Abstract

Spatially land-use/cover (LULC) models are necessary for sustainable environmental planning. Monitoring the process of LULC changes and planning for sustainable use of land can be successfully achieved by using the remote sensing multi-temporal data, spatial criteria and predictor models. In this study, LULC change analysis and modeling was performed on a protected area in the northeast of Iran. An integrated Cellular Automata-Markov Chain land change model was carried out to simulate the future landscape change during the period of 2019–2039. The predictive power of the model was successfully evaluated using Kappa indices. As a consequence, land change model predicts very well a continuing growing tendency in woodland, dense and sparse shrublands, as well as a downward trend in bare soil. Hence, if the current trends of change continue regardless of the actions of sustainable development, a good condition for natural area will ensue.
